i believe they only allow the recv() calls to aquire 'x' bytes of data a
second.  that way blocking the kernels buffer until more data is pulled
of it.

at least, thats my guess.

BTW, whats the 'Linux NT downloader' all about?  someusefull program for
upgrading an ailing linux system, into an all singing and dancing
multimedia super sensation from bill the Geezor?
